2009 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend
California: Napa Valley: Oakville
Topography of the Soul
Today’s Topos Wines 2009 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend was the unquestioned hit of our recent tasting panel. We always love discovering under-the-radar wineries, and love it even more when their wines are out of this world good!
This wine is a heady blend of Napa Cab and Petite Syrah, and is absolutely gorgeous in the glass. Full of intense dark fruits, smoky sweet hints of terroir, and a slight touch of rustic minerality, this wine is really the complete package. Quite a few members of our tasting panel found themselves pouring a second glass of this gem!
We love red blends at TWS, and this is a prime example of a winemaker who knows his stuff. Get yours now!
Deep scarlet with flecks of purple throughout the glass, with a hint of a lighter ruby at the edge of the glass.
Intense flavors of blackberry and dark plum laid overtop tobacco leaf, berry bramble, toasted oak spice, hints of sage, and a touch of minerality.
A wonderful blend of bold dark fruit flavors and terroir notes of earth and smoke. Black plum, black currant, and boysenberry mingle with dark baking spices, sweet tobacco leaf, rosemary, espresso bean, and a rustic graphite minerality.
A smooth and well structured finish, highlighted by extracted notes of blackberry and a touch of pomegranate herbal tea at the finish.
A ribeye, grilled on an open charcoal flame, served alongside roasted golden potatoes.
